Welcome to EnMAP

The German Spaceborne Imaging Spectrometer Mission

The Environmental Mapping and Analysis Program (EnMAP) is a German hyperspectral satellite mission that monitors and characterizes Earth’s environment on a global scale. EnMAP measures geochemical, biochemical and biophysical variables providing information on the status and evolution of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. More information about the main objectives and the status can be found on the mission page.


  • Processor change log now available online
    published on June 21, 2024

    The change log of the EnMAP processor is now available in the Data & Access section under Related Documents (direct link here) and will be updated whenever necessary. The change log provides a simplified overview of the main improvements introduced in the EnMAP processor software since launch. Based on this information, users can autonomously decide which processor versions are more adequate for their application cases. A more in-depth description of the different EnMAP processor versions and corresponding improvements may be found in the mission quarterly reports in the Mission section.

  • Back-to-Back image tasking introduced in EnMAP
    published on May 28, 2024
    Back-to-Back image tasking has been recently introduced in the EnMAP mission and will allow for more image acquisitions in regions of high interest by minimizing the required distance between single acquisition requests. In the coming weeks the system will be optimized for this new situation. Until then, some issues with the tasking of certain orders can appear and work is ongoing to continuously improve the system. In the meantime, we kindly suggest to browse the EnMAP archive to check if your area of interest has already been observed.
  • Instrument Planning Portal Updates
    published on May 07, 2024

    Several enhancements have been made within the Instrument Planning Portal to improve the acquisition strategy, including:

    • Limitation of the order acquisition time window to a maximum of 3 months.
    • Prevention of further ordering once the quota is exhausted.
